“Black Lightning” delivered the most-watched series premiere in the past two years and remains The CW’s second highest-rated show just behind “The Flash”.
“Black Lightning” follows Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), a man wrestling with a secret. As the father of two daughters and principal of a charter high school that also serves as a safe haven for young people in a neighborhood overrun by gang violence, he is a hero to his community. Nine years ago, Pierce was a hero of a different sort. Gifted with the superhuman power to harness and control electricity, he used those powers to keep his hometown streets safe as the masked vigilante Black Lightning. Almost a decade later, Pierce’s crime-fighting days are long behind him…or so he thought. But with crime and corruption spreading like wildfire, and those he cares about in the crosshairs of the menacing local gang The One Hundred, “Black Lightning” returns — to save not only his family, but also the soul of his community.
“Black Lightning” stars Cress Williams (“Hart of Dixie”, “Code Black”), China Anne McClain (“House of Payne”, “Descendants 2″), Nafessa Williams (“Code Black”, “Twin Peaks”), Christine Adams (“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”, “Batman Begins”), Marvin “Krondon” Jones III, Damon Gupton (“Whiplash, Bates Motel”, “Empire”) and James Remar (“Dexter”, “Sex and the City”, “The Path”). Based on the DC character created by Tony Isabella with Trevor Von Eeden, “Black Lightning” is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (“Arrow”, “The Flash”, “Supergirl”, “Blindspot”, “Riverdale”), Salim and Mara Brock Akil (“The Game”, “Being Mary Jane”, “Girlfriends”), and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow”, “The Flash”, “Supergirl”, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”).
